Paul Samuelson, the first Nobel laureate in economics from the United States and a renowned professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), died yesterday at age 94.

According to the New York Times obituary, Samuelson “was credited with transforming his discipline from one that ruminates about economic issues to one that solves problems, answering questions about cause and effect with mathematical rigor and clarity.”
